    Rating column for RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX

    Here is yet another handy column type coming for RadGrid. The GridRatingColumn will show a RadRating control for every data item in your RadGrid, both in view and edit mode. GridRatingColumn will support 2 modes of interaction. In the standard mode, GridRatingColumn will behave like an ordinary editable column. It will display a read-only RadRating control when the item is in view mode and an editable RadRating control when in edit mode. Alternatively, the rating column will allow you to change the rating value even in view mode. Thus, when RadGrid posts back, you can get the updated value on the server...

    RadEditor dialogs - what's new in the Q1 2010 release

    As usual, the next major update of the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX will be packed with exciting new features. Unfortunately, this means that some performance related optimizations will be left in the background, which is why I want to present one of them here. The Q1 2010 release will add a new property for the RadEditor's RadDialogOpener control - EnableTelerikManagers. When it set to true and you have a RadScriptManager or a RadStyleSheetManager on the page, the editor dialogs will start using these controls as well. The main benefit from the script and stylesheet managers is faster loading speed - due to less...

    Integrated Description field in RadScheduler for ASP.NET AJAX

    .csharpcode, .csharpcode pre { font-size: small; color: black; font-family: consolas, "Courier New", courier, monospace; background-color: #ffffff; /*white-space: pre;*/ } .csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; } .csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; } .csharpcode .str { color: #006080; } .csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; } .csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; } .csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; } .csharpcode .html { color: #800000; } .csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; } .csharpcode .alt { background-color: #f4f4f4; width: 100%; margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; } One very common issue that we’ve addressed in the Q3 release is the lack of a description field for the appointments. Until now you had to customize the advanced template in order to get one, but not any more. How to enable the integrated description field: Data Source - set DataDescriptionField to the corresponding column in your database: <telerik:RadScheduler runat="server" ID="RadScheduler1" DataSourceID="AppointmentsDataSource" DataKeyField="ID" DataSubjectField="Subject" DataDescriptionField="Description" DataStartField="Start" DataEndField="End" DataRecurrenceField="RecurrenceRule" DataRecurrenceParentKeyField="RecurrenceParentID"> ... </telerik:RadScheduler> Provider – set EnableDescriptionField to “true” and persist the Appointment.Description value in your provider. <telerik:RadScheduler runat="server" ID="RadScheduler1" ProviderName="XmlSchedulerProvider" EnableDescriptionField="true" > ... </telerik:RadScheduler> This is all you need for editing and storing the description, but what about showing it? A simple appointment template will do: <AppointmentTemplate> <div> <%#...

    Accessible RadEditor used by the Royal National Institute of Blind People

    I am posting this on behalf of the editor team here at Telerik. It has been a really great experience to work with the folks at the Royal National Institute of the Blind People (RNIB) and Content and Code. The folks at RNIB helped us a lot to improve the accessible feature set of RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX and we are very happy with the results. We are proud to be the chosen component vendor for an accessible HTML editor. The required changes to the editor client code were not difficult and added the needed features for blind and partially sighted people. Some...
